The Google Pixel 4 will likely debut sometime in October, but until then, we will have to depend on rumors and leaks to learn more about this much-anticipated device. The latest leak related to the upcoming device reveals the Google Pixel 4 colors, and if the renderings are to be believed, then we will get the Pixel 4 in mint green.
The leaked renderings come from India Shopps and show three Google Pixel 4 colors: white, black and mint green. India Shopps claims the renderings came from sources close to the “Pixel smartphone development team.” In all, there are four images showing the Google Pixel 4 colors.
Google’s Pixel 4 in mint certainly looks amazing. Even the usual black and white colors look different and fresher than the previous Pixel smartphones. The deep black camera module on the back also presents a classy contrast. However, what looks a bit odd is the yellow power button on the mint green phone. Similarly, the white phone has a blue button, and the black phone features a white power button.
Although all three colors look great, the authenticity of the renderings is doubtful. The first thing that raises doubt is that one of them reveals the front of the phone, which hasn’t been shown officially or revealed by even more trusted tipsters. What is also suspect is that the front of the phone shown here matches concept renderings of the Pixel 4 that we have seen so far. According to the latest rendering, the handset has no fingerprint sensor on the back and no notch or hole punch.
The renderings also show an inverted camera module. Although it is possible that the Pixel 4 and Pixel 4 XL have different camera modules, it seems highly unlikely that Google would opt for two different module designs. Additionally, Google has already revealed how the rear of the device will look.
These renderings might not be legitimate, but that does not undermine the possibility of a mint green variant for the Pixel 4. In fact, Google even teased a mint green Pixel 3 last year, but it eventually released the “Not Pink” color.
Last week Google tweeted the press rendering of the Pixel 4 from its official MadebyGoogle account. The tweet confirmed the handset’s design, including the square camera module in the top-left corner with two camera lenses and a third sensor. Further, the image showed a power button and the “G” logo at the bottom of the device.
Trusted tipster OnLeaks shared more details about the Pixel 4 and 4 XL recently. The tipster claims the smaller variant will feature a screen measuring between 5.6 and 5.8 inches and dimensions of 147.0 x 68.9 x8.2 mm, compared to 145.6 x 68.2 x 7.9 mm for the Pixel 3. For the XL, the tipster expects a screen between 6.2 and 6.4 inches with dimensions of 160.4 x 75.2 x 8.2 mm, compared to 158 x 76.7 x 7.9 mm for the Pixel 3 XL.
Further, there are rumors that the Pixel 4 could feature a Soli radar sensor to allow the use of air gestures and hands-free controls to perform some functions. XDA Developers, which found a reference to a dynamic white balance adjustment in Android Q, suggested that the upcoming handset could have an auto-adjusting display.
Moreover, Pricebaba suggested that the handset will be powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 and feature 6 GB of RAM. There are also reports that the search giant is working on its own facial recognition technology for the upcoming handset. Such a feature would make sense because the handset may not come with a rear-facing fingerprint sensor.
As far as the release date for the Pixel 4 phones, Google has unveiled its new Pixel phones in October at its Made by Google events in the last two years. The Pixel 2 phones were announced on Oct. 19, 2017, while last year’s Pixel 3 phones were revealed on Oct. 4. Google is expected to stick to the same timeline for the Pixel 4 phones.
In terms of price, Google could give the Pixel 4 a similar or even lower price tag than the Pixel 3, which retailed for $799 at launch. The more affordable Pixel 3a has become the best-selling unlocked phone on Amazon. This seems to suggest that buyers are attracted to the Pixel lineup’s affordable price tag.
